Confused about sent-received and upload-download   20 April 2010, 19:43

Hi, everyone!
Sorry for my bad English first.

I'm a newbie, now trying BWM 2.9.10 to limit all clients' download/upload to 150K/50K, I had set two rules for every IP like these:

Rule#1: 192.168.0.2_download
Direction: outgoing
Rate Limit: 153600 bytes/s
Protocol: Any IPv4 Based
Interface: LAN
Source: ANY
Destination: 192.168.0.2

Rule#2: 192.168.0.2_upload
Direction: incoming
Rate Limit: 51200 bytes/s
Protocol: Any IPv4 Based
Interface: LAN
Source: 192.168.0.2
Destination: ANY

I think these rules are right, but from the manual, I found:
Quote

In order to use different upstream/downstream rates in a bidirectional rule, specify the rates separated by a colon. For example 100000:50000 would enforce a 100 kbps limit on incoming traffic and a 50 kbps limit on outgoing traffic.


Now I'm confused about the Direction/Source/Destination, can I limit both download/upload within only one single rule? Like this:

Rule#1: 192.168.0.2
Direction: both(or just select either incoming/outgoing?)
Rate Limit: 51200:153600 bytes/s(or 153600:51200?)
Source:???
Destination: ???

I think I'm confused by what the "Direction" exactly mean because I'm not family with NET, sad.

If I can do like this, how to set the Direction/Rate/Source/Destination?

Thanks all.

Yes, you can get this done with just one rule, which would look as follows:
Direction: Either
Rate Limit: 51200:153600
Protocol: Any IPv4 Based 
Interface: LAN 
Source: 192.168.0.2 
Destination: Any
This should allow user 192.168.0.2 to download at up to 150 KB/s and upload at up to 50 KB/s. If it happens to be all the way round, just swap the numbers as 153600:51200
Sorry for reply so late.

I have checked one match can work:
Direction: Outgoing
Rate Limit: 51200:153600
Protocol: Any IPv4 Based
Interface: LAN
Source: ANY
Destination: 192.168.0.2

Today I am checking swap Rate Limit & outgoing/incoming & Source/Dest because I want to know what will happen, laugh, but they all using Internet, so I can't, also do not want, get more bandwidth for testing, of cause, with BWM, I CAN get more bandwidth, laughwink.

But still THANKS Andrew!!! Also THANKS BWM and this forum!!!
